New tail lights?

So does anybody know what's a good choice for some new tail lights. I absolutely hate the orange blinker along with any and all tail lights that have orange blinkers. I mean I'm ok with orange turn signals on the front but on the tail lights, orange blinkers suck. So does anybody know of any red/clear tail lights for the back of the fourth generation, preferably LEDs?

the earlier 4th gens only had red lights, maybe you could adapt those lenses for the later 4th gen that had the orange signal lights.
I am sure some aftermarket companies have replacement lights you could use.
Look at this google search

I'm thinking about something along the lines of the red clear led lights or the smoke led lights that car id has

I actually like Amber Turn signals, but I have to agree on the 4th Gen Camaro they just don't look right, I would think the bulb setup would retrofit for the earlier all red ones.

Yeh they more than likely would, I just prefer led ones though, nowadays. Those lights from the early 90s are old now, and out of style imo.

The Amber directionals were actually a Asian/Euro thing, I can recall first US use on the the '78 LeSabre, & possibly the Mid '70's Ford Granada's.
Some of the packages on the '79+ Camaros, featured these which I always thought looked good.

The tri-color lenses look a bit chopped up the way they configured the lamp arangement, '97 & up 4th Gens I think.

I posted in a new post but any retrofit LED lamps for these that use the existing lenses?

there are some nice retrofits for the 3rd gen. The only stockish tail light that looks good to me is the ones on the LT1 camaro. The only way I'd have kept my stock tail lights is if I VHT'd them

Actually I would just keep my stock lenses, but I wanted to use the LED lighting, but there are many complaints on the brightness of the LED bulbs that replace the standard incandecents.

I think there is a slight tint to the '93-'96 anyway (I could be wrong) I like the treatment on my Bonneville SSE that has a black grid over the lense.

Agree, the '93-96 lenses look uncluttered.

Yeah thats I was refering too, shoulda been more specific. The LED's that replace the bulbs, retaining stock lenses (3rd gen). They look nice, I think the brightness is just right.

I say the Smoke LED's. those are some of my favorite, but if you really wanna get fancy, you can buy LED boards and single lights, and use the factory assembly, and make your own LED's in what ever pattern or style you want...just google it, you can get some pretty cool results
